Recent Manuel Antonio reviews

  • Awesome vacation!!

    "I didn't think this would be the case, but the pictures actually do not do the villa justice!!! What a great vacation we had over Christmas 2016! The house is in a beautiful setting, overlooking the Pacific and surrounded by the jungle. While you can see a lot of incredible wildlife at nearby Manuel Antonio park, we saw some of the most amazing things right from the poolside! From sloths, to 3 different types of monkeys, toucans, and a huge variety of birds ... all while floating around in the pool. There are lots of good restaurants around and a couple of small supermarkets on top of the hill. The path near the house that heads to the beach is steep (especially going back up), but it brings you to the best end of the beach where there are great waves to play in, and palm trees to relax under. I won't deny that there was a lot of walking up steep hills, but using the pools or the ocean to cool off in is just awesome! You can also avoid climbing back up to the house from the beach by catching a local bus (for 60 cents) up to the top of the hill, then walking down to the villa. We did this when we were feeling lazy :) . Chris, the concierge, was super helpful and one of the friendliest Costa Ricans you'll ever meet. I highly recommend this villa. We were a large family group, and it was nice to have this villa as our starting point for adventures in the area, and for some quality family time."

  • A Hidden Gem

    "We loved this house. It is close to the beach and restaurants. It has all the amenities you will need. Julie has even supplied a Boogie board, cooler and beach chairs (for $10, at the beach, you can rent chairs and an umbrella for the day). The main deck has an incredible view of the beaches and Manuel Antonio National Park. You can even see the sunset from the house (do not miss the sunsets from the beach, especially the beaches near Manuel Antonio). The private outdoor shower is the best especially after the walk back from the beach or just to cool off in general. You do have to be in reasonable shape to walk up the stairs to the house or just take your time and enjoy all the plants and trees along the way. We always stopped halfway up to chat with Bismark and his family. The dogs (especially Nina, would always escort us back to the house). From the deck, we saw White faced & Squirrel monkeys, Macaws, Toucans, a sloth and other interesting birds. We did not see the Howler monkeys but you could hear them. Bismark, his family and dogs were a blessing. So helpful, so kind. We will not forget this house or Bismark and his family. The owner Julie was very helpful and made the whole experience very easy. Thanks. A few things we enjoyed: El Santuario Zip Lining, Rainmaker hike, Jungle night tour, local beaches and Manuel Antonio National Park (go early, 7:00am) and do all the trails, then hang out at the beach for the rest of the day (bring food and drinks)."

  • Awesome

    "We planned a 70 Birthday at Villa Pelicano and 14 family members (7-72 years old) attended. The Villa was spectacular and their was more than adequate room to accommodate us. Geralyn planned our trips to and from the airport in a vehicle that accompanied our group and our luggage. She recommended and planned our excursions which were fantastic. She arranged for cabs to take us to and from the beach and reserved lounges and umbrellas. Chef Ana was terrific and helped us choose menus that were very delicious. We experienced no problems during our trip and our group thoroughly enjoyed this experience. I recommend this trip without reservation. Reviews like this convinced me to stay at the Villa and I am very happy that I did."
